It was built 27 years ago by a group of dedicated volunteers from Oxford. Now, a new flock of dedicated Oxford volunteers will rebuild a playground for children in honor of a hometown child taken too soon.
And they are looking for help.
Volunteers are needed to rebuild the playground at Oxford Center School this weekend. The old playground was built in 1985 in memory of the late Rachel Roman, an OCS student who died that year at age 6. Her parents, Ed and Pam, are on the committee that is rebuilding it. The new playground will also be dedicated in her memory.
The committee needs about 60 people to help throughout the day. Shifts will work 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Noon to 5 p.m. Please contact us if you can work a shift so that we know how many people to expect.
Volunteers Needed For:
Saturday, Aug. 17 – Volunteers needed for construction of new playground must be 18+ years old
Sunday, Aug. 18 – Family Day – Bring the kids and help clean-up, sort and spread mulch.
